'n Hart van Goud
Ek was gevra om ietsie oor Pa te sê
Maar waar begin ek nou
Wanneer daar eintlik net een ding is wat ek nou wil doen
Om steeds my arms om Pa te vou

Maar nou is Pa weg
Na ‘n plek waar Pa tog...Read More

Broken Afrikaans
die briesie van herlewing kom saam met u besoek

daar is 'n hindernis van byna 500 jaar wat ons suiwerheid geskei het

in velkleur, godsdiens en verhoudings
ons is van wortels gekastreer en gevoer met

godsdienstige ywer, gierigheid,
en wrede verkragting van ons voorgeslag

Die reptiel vrou - The reptile woman
Die reptiel vrou
Het my alweer geflous 
Met my gedeel, haarself ontbloot, 
en toe
Die bitter gif gespoeg

Dit vloei uit my bors uit, deur my are
Verander my bloed - haar bloed
Word swart, taai, en koud
Soos haar hart

The reptile woman
Has fooled...Read More

The All-Time Greatest Great Britain
This small island civilization,
its empire was the largest creation,
with the widest trade connection,
there are mixed views of our colonization.

EDIBLE MUSIC
EDIBLE    MUSIC

Playing alone because  of their halitosis.
After  making each other’s mouth water,
Clever   lemons  blowing  their  trumpets  by osmosis.

with confusing the a fore mentioned

Gone through the sun but fun
with life of thorn and burn
now the result the negative bio-rhythm

Geographically located in bliss
with males of bonny and muscular...Read More

The Dik-Dik's Dilemma

The Dik-Dik is an antelope
Who longs to be a misanthrope

But since he “pronks”, instead of lopes,
He doesn’t really have a hope …





* “Pronk” is the name of the dik-dik’s jaunty little bounce when he runs.
 It is an Afrikaans description.
